    I just fear we will not have a readily ample amount of activists to hold up more than a day, let alone a single day gathering in one area. Man this is tough

    The demonstration at the CDC is posted at ACTUP.ORG on the 2nd page of the front page news and contains more details. They have been very receptive and helpful with our plight. I believe they may be our last hope in getting enough people to make an impact. WE NEED MORE PEOPLE or at least ideas how to get them. Any group will do, because it effects EVERYONE. Thanks, Jim

    Jimbob, thanks for sticking with organizing this protest!! This is very important, imo.

    My offer still still stands of donating $200 for stipends for local pwME to come (by giving, say, $20, to each pwME or family member or friend that comes to protest for the day).

    Curious if you've had a chance to contact any Atlanta-area support groups?

    Please hit Facebook as some people are interested and need more info!

    Have to get the word out and get the sick and healthy to Atlanta to demonstrate in front of CDC. It is WAY PAST TIME for a major, newsmaking demo at the CDC on US.

    I don't know if this has been discussed. Too tired to read all. Act Up did
    Die In's at public places of interest have been thinking about Sick Ins for some time now. Like the front of the door of the CDC. Maybe chained to the door will get the police involved, Be prepared for arrest with lawyers and bail money. I'm ready. Die Ins for AID's got media attention and results. And civil disobedience is a legitimate and historical political action. If those with ME/CFS and or their representative came with all the aids that it takes to stay... Wheel chairs, oxygen, medicines, blankies etc. It gives a better picture. We could get MARTA disability van to pick us up and bring us to the CDC. Then it could return shortly and take people home. I'm housebound but I will go in a heartbeat. 'Corse I live in ATL. Or Maybe I will get my aid to bring me down and I could lay in the car seat with the doors open.. Whatever. The press neads to be notified as well as the CDC. And someone needs to acquire a permit. Although arresting sick people makes good tv. there is one group NE of here and I think they would like to show up.

    May demonstration at the CDC postponed until after April and May ME/CFS upcoming events. Due to lack of numbers, there wasn't enough time for a plan B, where a smaller group could put on a different type of demo. Thanks to all who volunteered and helped out. Jim

    That's too bad it's delayed. Really hope we have one some time soon. Thanks for working on this, Jimbob!
